insurance information during questioning and after the search along the beach he reported robyn went missing. >> we don't know what was going through his mind at the time he took this out. but it would seem this casual relationship is not one that would particularly call upon taking out a life insurance policy, especially should he have made himself the beneficiary. >> reporter: giordano's digital cameras, cell phones, and computer from the hotel room have been sent to curacao for analysis. and nbc aruba reporter said there was no significant evidence. >> the possible evidence was a rock with a full hand print and blood on it. >> reporter: in prison wednesday, giordano was questioned with his attorney present. he repeatedly declared his client innocent. but he can't come forward as giordano threatens to fire him if he shows uh on tv right now

7:14 am
he goes to aruban customs, u.s. customs. answer more questions. . what he might have tried to discard. >> i imagine that you have heard and i have heard over the past few weeks people here in the united states make comments to the effect of if you want to get away with murder, go to aruba. that the perception is that the law enforcement authorities are not up to a challenge like that? is that a fair assess [. >> i don't think in this circumstance. the implausibility of giordano's story. what was off of the island bordering venezuela there. it's difficult and they reached out to the fbi. they followed the steps in this circumstance. >> thank you very much. >> 14 minutes past the hour, here's savannah. now to politics, president obama sets off on his ten-day summer vacation today after wrapping up his bus tour through

>> back now at 8:10 with outrage over a lingerie line for girls as young as 4 years old. critics say it's not just the apparel, but the promotional photos of young models in adult poses. we have the story this morning. good morning. >> good morning to you, savannah. how young is too young for sexy underwear. the problem for some is much bigger than one line of underwear. it's that little girls are being sexualized far too often. little girls in mid drift tops,
8:11 am
camisoles, bras and panties. this is lingerie for 4-year-olds. the underwear innocently dubbed lounge-erie is a new invention for a french company designed for 4 to 12-year-olds and upsetting many. >> it's racy for a little kid. >> too much, too much skin. >> does a little girl even need that top. >> the latest products for little girls to cause a big stir, crossing over from the adult world to the kid zone, including padded bras for girls as young as 7, bikinis for babies, and high heels for toddlers, as we previously reported. >> what's one the shoes? >> don't start them at the age of 1. >> not just the product, but how they're being marketed. tiny tots with big hair, frolicking on a bed, sitting on a makeup table. >> it's brilliant marketing on their part. i think they definitely went into it thinking this is going to get me a lot of attention, bad or good intention. no pr is bad pr.
8:12 am
>> it's seen in the pages of high-fashion magazines. the face behind this seductive post is just 10 years old. the sultry spread in january's french vogue led to such an outcry, the mother shut down the young girl's facebook page writing, i want to protect her from the deepest of my heart so we're going to close this. some critics fear that marketing is encouraging young girls to grow up too quickly. a dance studio in the uk is offering pole cannesing cla ida for girls as young as 3. tots were twirling around metal poles. >> the impact that the hypersexualization has on girls they become overly sexualized too early. they're preoccupied with sex and body image, which can contribute to self-esteem issues and body image issues. >> glamorous and beautiful images which some fear could have ugly consequences.
8:13 am
>> french company behind that lounge-erie about the controversy saying their goal was to create soft and agreeable undergarments for children and there are no vulgar implications. if for pole dancing class, the instructor said it's no different than a gymnastics class and there's nothing sexual about it. >> donny deutsch is the chairman of the advertising giant deutsche incorporated. cards on the table. when i looked as these photos this morning, i felt a little sick to my stomach. is there any justification for these advertisements? and a lingerie line for little girls? >> let's not mince any words here. this is sexualization of girlings. we are showing sexuality inappropriately on another person, in this case, children. we know the sexualization on
8:14 am
children can cause a lot of problems, eating disorders, poor sexual health later on, risky behaviors. this is not child's play. >> the concept of lingerie for little kids is not appropriate. but then the advertising, donny, takes it to the next. >> let me talk first as a dad, three little ones s at home. this is grotesque. there are two sides to this argument. the poses. same on this company. i hope the authorities look at them. there's no shock value. one of the women in their early 30s, oh, shock value. there's repulsiveness. this is a big problem right now. i have young girls and i remember shopping for a halloween costume. and everything is like the slugty nurse and slugty -- slugty is the new black. and something has to stop here. something has got to stop. and basically, the word negligee in and of itself doesn't belong there. the poses are ridiculous, the
8:15 am
clothing is ridiculous. this is not a debate subject. this is disgusting. >> you talked about the effect of these kinds of images on little girls. i looked at it, my thought was, think of the creeps out there that have the photographs to look at. >> plants it seed even further. >> people wonder, why do we care? it's in france. >> but what happens in france stays in france. it permeates all of our airways, we're talking about it in the united states and the effects on girls. we need more positive images out there depict our girls in a way that say looks is not the most important thing and sex is not the most important thing. >> i would love to talk to the parents of those girls. we live in a world now where people are so starved for celebrity and attention that parents or people of kids will do anything. and i would like to really examine the parents. the kids are victims here. >> look at the french "vogue," two photos of a 10-year-old
8:16 am
model all dolled up in what vogue called high-fashion poses. is this becoming a trend? >> i feel like it is. we're seeing images constantly. we don't see the positive images. we see the constant negative images and we do have an effect. we know that the girls are affected because we see them in the studies constantly. the adult makeup, the positioning that is just sick. >> it doesn't stop there. i have to tell you, i was at a barmitzvah and it's all 13-year-old girls and they're in cocktail dresses and high heels. the struggle i have as a dad with my 8-year-old, we have to constantly pull her back. they're getting images out there that it's off the shoulder. that sexy is good at a young age. this is a macro problem. it really, really is. >> you have to spark some change. >>er with we're all in agreement on this one. >> nothing to fight about today. >> no. coming up next, the academy award nominee ann hathaway after this.
